In the Wilderness

This year has been unlike any other, our engagement with Lent will be the same.  Lent calls us to journey with Jesus through the wilderness and find our way toward Easter’s hope.  We invite you to encounter God in the wilderness and return, receive, and renew with Campus Ministry this Lenten season.

Opportunities to Engage during Lent

Encounter Holy Week

Encounter Holy Week is designed to allow you to dive into the meaning of Holy Week in different ways.  In addition to the Holy Week liturgies, there is a digital retreat resource that journeys through each of the days of Holy Week.  You can also sign-up for take-home kits that include physical pieces and guided reflections to help you engage in Holy Week through sensory experiences.  You have the option to register for every part or can choose to participate in just one Holy Week experience. The choice is up to you! To register for the digital retreat and take-home kits, please go to and select the "Encounter Holy Week" option.


Lenten Almsgiving for the Marianist Programs

Join us in the Lenten Almsgiving Collection which serves those most vulnerable through Marianist Programs in India and Africa. Money collected will be given to Our Lady of Nazareth School in Kenya, MIRACLE in Malawi, The REDS program in India, Chaminade Health Care Center in India and Rural Health Care Center in Togo. All five programs serve the needs of the poor through education, encouragement, and meeting basic needs. You can donate online at
